The city of Roswell is reminding local residents ahead of Fourth of July celebrations about which types of fireworks are allowed and which are banned.

City spokesman Todd Wildermuth issued the announcement about illegal and legal fireworks. Legal fireworks can be sold in the state between June 20 and July 6.

Legal fireworks are ground and handheld sparkling or smoking devices and some aerial devices. Handheld sparkling or smoking devices include cone fountains, crackling devices, cylindrical fountains, flitter sparklers, ground spinners, illuminating torches, toy smoke devices and wheels. Aerial devices are mines, Roman candles and shells.

Illegal fireworks are bottle rockets, Saturn missile batteries, all types of missiles and all types of fireworks that make a ground-level report or bang.

Wildermuth indicates more information, including specific definitions, can be found in the New Mexico Fireworks Licensing and Safety Act (60-2C-2).
